MARRIAGE EQUALITY


The Victorian Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby invites you to the 4th annual Equal Love rally and Midwinta vows.While some progress has been made with an imminent Victorian Relationships Register, same-sex relationships are still not fully recognised in law and marriage is still banned.
We invite you and your friends, families, colleagues and neighbours to join us on Sunday August 3 to 'Stand up for your love rights'.


Details:
EQUAL LOVE RALLY + MIDWINTA VOWS
SUNDAY AUGUST 3, 1PM
STATE LIBRARY Cnr SWANSTON & LA TROBE Sts
This is just not only about every gay couple in the village wanting to overwhelm churches and registry offices to get married. It's about having a choice whether or not to make a partnership official. Gays and Lesbians don't have this choice, it was denied them by an act of Parliament. An act that singled out their relationships as having no value to society. The current Government is not in a hurry to right a wrong but we're working on them. In a world of hate, let's go for love.

Witchy,

You've only posted this to piss Robbert off.

Ahhh, who cares about Robert - I've got a smile from ear to ear.

Thank you darlings, and I'd comment on this post, but I've just come home from a Christening. Saint Ignatius, Richmond.

Unfortunately when the collection came around I happened to be in the crying room.

Unfortunately, or fortunately, take your pick.

A woman then asked me if I'd been Baptised, "Are you a Catholic," she said.

"No," I said.

"You're Protestant?" she said.

"I go to any church," I said.

"My church is the Lord Jesus Christ."


Warm regards,
Love to you all,
-Robert

It takes a lot more than this to piss Robbert off when he's happy and he's just been to a christening so he's happy.

One look at the beautiful Charlotte Kathleen and even RH would agree you both are fabulous mothers.

A fine answer Robbert and I heartily agree, too many religions and not enough listening to the main man who preached love and tolerance.

I don't mind who marries who, as long as there's cake and I get some.

That'd be Casinova in his dotage then.

I'm with the Ra worshipping Annie and bless my ISP every day.

River, I love iced-up fruit wedding cake especially the corner bits where the icing's on both sides. The Americans think a fruit cake is very strange for a wedding and prefer those sponge and butter cream things and a mud cake for the groom.

One thing about the man I like, he bathed. A clean bloke straight from a bath is the only time they should be touched.
